U.S. Air Force Major George Filer belongs to the generation of pilots and airmen who first became aware of the strange aircraft showing up in the Earth’s atmosphere after World War II.These men – military professionals who flew planes, commanded ships, served as radar operators and air traffic controllers at air fields around the world – began to whisper amongst themselves about encounters with suspected extraterrestrial aircraft. During secret debriefings at U.S. bases, pilots and air crew told their commanders of seeing strange lights at night and in the daylight, groups of saucer- or cigar-shaped craft that easily paced them just a few yards off their plane’s wingtip.Award-winning investigative reporter John Guerra spent four years interviewing Filer, a decorated intelligence officer. From objects in the skies over Cold War Europe to a UFO overflight during the Cuban Missile Crisis to strange lights over the DMZ during the Tet Offensive, Filer leaves nothing out about his Air Force UFO encounters, providing Guerra all the amazing details of his six decades investigating extraterrestrials and their craft. Filer’s most memorable case – the shooting of an alien at Fort Dix Army Base in 1978 – is fully recounted for the first time in this book.Filer – who readers have seen on countless UFO documentaries – is also a member of the Disclosure Project, the famous panel of military experts, astronauts, and scientists that urges the U.S. government to release all it knows about UFOs to the public. Then, in the fall of 2017, the Pentagon released the F-18 gun camera footage of what can only be described as an extraterrestrial vehicle outperforming U.S. Navy fighters off San Diego. For the first time, after decades of denying what its intelligence officers, pilots, base commanders and air traffic control personnel know to be true, the military finally admitted to what Filer describes in this incredible book.

Bad, bad, bad This is very, very badly written. It is flooded with useless particulars. It rambles. It jumps and skips. It uses 4 sentences where three words would have been better. It describes the birthdates of family members, the lifestyle of the man in the ’50’s, and it has far too many adjectives. It is unfocused and scattered and exceptionally long winded. It is vague about the observations of encounters. It is immature. I can’t believe the author graduated from college. It actually says “nobody…

George Filer’s life…….well lived, well done I found it filled with information that I had never seen nor heard of before. This is especially true being that I have known George now for a number of years and he rarely spoke that much about himself other than during his presentations, then only what could be fit into an hour or so. I’m glad that you were able to capture the essence of his life in the way that you did. The story behind the facts is what I found most interesting (and surprising). It provided context. I also found the…

Major George Filer has devoted his life to the investigation of UFOs, starting in the Air Force. My knowledge of George Filer began in 1992. During the subsequent 26 years of friendship, I never knew how much he had experienced and witnessed while serving in the Air Force, until I read his book, a biography written by John L. Guerra. It reveals how his exposure to classified information on UFOs changed his interests and motivations to create Filer’s Files, published as weekly editions on related subjects and sightings.I have been in the field with George Filer near Pine Bush,…
